Thanks! Will try to get some from the local farm stores first. Going to make some tracking sticks for the kids too. Do you think I could get away with making shorter ones for them? Otherwise they'll be taking each other's eyes out if I make them full size.
BTW we found some great tracks on the beach today and we tracked a man with really big feet and a really big dog for ages only to find him coming back towards us! :shock:
As these perish quickly I have found that an easily replacable method is to use elastic bands - I like to colour code these and have four - 2 x red is for distance in between prints - 2 x yellow is for width of prints.
Works for me!
Plus if pushed the bands can be used for other stuff too.
